, i'm dee dee workman with the san francisco chamber of commerce and a resident of district nine, pg&e rate payer, representing over 1,500 local businesses and resident owners and employees. we are very concerned about the impacts of the clean power sf program on san francisco businesses, residents and the local community. community choice aggregation was originally designed to inject competition and generation of electrical power. the goals were to drive prices down, maintain rate stability, provide over half the power load from renewable sources and find a supplier for a long-term contract. this contract ensures none of those goals. rates for electricity charges will increase. this is a short-term contract that creates no green power, results in net loss of jobs in san francisco. all the liability rests with the taxpayers. while it is well intended and we appreciate the hard work that's gone into this we feel like it is not ready to go. and clean power san francisco does not represent or reflect goals of community choice aggregation program. the san francisco chamber of commerce ur

, making certain that our infrastructure is strong and able to move our situation of a comeback, commerce requires the shipping of freight. it needs the infrastructure, our communities require that our investment in infrastructure otherwise they go it the way of a property tax or less progressive tax structure. so we know what needs to be done and the denial here by the do-nothing republican congress is not acceptable. it's painful. it's immoral. it's insensitive, it's un-american. to put partisanship ahead of partnership is unacceptable. we know that the american spirit requires better than that. and so we need to respond to america's working families. we need to respond to the hope that ought to be delivered to the doorstep of families across this great nation. our history is replete with investment, investment to take us to new ages, new elements of success, new impacts on the world scene. you know, earlier i had spoken of the mill towns that became epicenters of invention. it was their product delivery coming out of the mill towns, coming out of those 24-hour- a-day operations, not in

the commerce clause was not very relevant. they still worried about that and that's why the program was designed that way. one of the reasons it's so difficult to get states to cooperate with the federal government. as has been outfitted to come up there with the gao in fiscal year 2009, nine different agencies spent $18 billion to administer 47 different training programs. the report points out almost all federal employment training programs have included those with broader missions such as multipurpose autocrats overlapped with at least one program that provided similar services to similar populations. so there simply a lot of services being provided and oftentimes not provided in a very coherent fashion, at least from my standpoint. i should make clear there's a lot of people in this room that have worked actively at the department of labor. i am not one of them, so i defer to them. they have a lot more information about the structure of these programs. betsy made some very important points. but from the standpoint of looking outcome it does not seem as if we have a very coherent

, the agriculture department, the commerce department, homeland security, interior department, the army corps of engineers to hiring veterans in jobs such as conservation and first responders. however to comply with the paygo rules, we manipulate the system again. we include revenue increases, equal the cost of the bill; we do that by requiring a continuous levy on payments to medicare payment providers and s and also by revoking passports in cases of seriously delinquent taxpayers. i hear that's going to be pulled. but nobody knows. nobody has seen it. that's why we have committees, so we don't have to play with things before we have a base bill that we know what we can do on. the bill already violates the budget control act's aloe act'sn for federal affairs funding. it is subject to a 302(f) point of order because it is outside the bound of their appropriations. the bill states a distinct preference for the veteran vetef iraq by stating that these jobs are for veterans who have served since september 11, 2001. as with the veterans caregiver bill in 2009, this is blatant discrimination again
